Paolo Sorrentino has made a career out of creating films with an incredible sense of style, all often in the service of farce taking down the rich elite. In his Oscar-winning The Great Beauty, it was the snobbery of the high art world that came under his microscope, while in his last film Loro, he looked at the allure and corruptive power of greed through examining media tycoon and politician Silvio Berlusconi.
